Sean Poynter Training with Tiago Silva

International Starboard SUP Rider Sean Poynter spent a day training with us here in Portugal, Lisbon.

Our focus for this session was working on paddling technique, body awareness to get his mind/body working as one. We gave him a specific body conditioning training for SUP to help him getting into a stronger and even more balanced athlete.

SUP Race Training with Susanne Lier

Hey, we had the oportunity of having Susanne Lier training with us for 3 days and she was so kind sharing her experience and her thoughts about our project. What a great athlete she is!

“I just came back from an amazing training weekend with Tiago Silva from Functional Paddling (www.functionalpaddling.com) in Lisbon, Portugal.
My aim was to get a professional opinion and update about my paddle technique and my future training to be as best as possible for the next race season.
Tiago Silva is first of all a paddler and SUP instructor and knows exactly what we need to improve.
He created a special SUP conditioning program which combines indoor and water training.
His programm is suitable for athletes and “normal” paddlers to improve paddle technique,to prevent injuries and to get a perfect indoor and beach training for SUP.
Please feel free to contact him for more information about workshops and certification.” – Susanne Lier
